1.4.0a won't retrieve key from keyserver?

I've just noticed a problem that I'm having with the windows version 
(1.4.0a).  I can't seem to import any keys from the keyserver.  I can 
search the server, see the key, but when I select the key to import, i get 

gpg: requesting key <key-id> from hkp keyserver <keyserver-addr>
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0

but if i run the same command through a gpg-1.2.5 installation, the 
process completes and correctly imports the key i selected from the search.

Did something change in 1.4.0a in the way gpg gets keys from a keyserver?

Thanks in advance.
